Volunteer Clearances

Legislation in Pennsylvania requires community members and parents to obtain clearances in order to volunteer in our schools.  If you have previously submitted your clearances to the Human Resources office, they are good for five (5) years from the date of the clearance. 

Fees for Pennsylvania Criminal Record Check and Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance will be waived for volunteers whose applications are filed after July 25, 2015, according to state officials. 

If you have been a Pennsylvania resident for the past ten (10) years, and have not been convicted of enumerated offenses, you may submit this Affidavit, in lieu of the FBI fingerprinting check.

*Please note the affidavit witness signature must be signed by someone who knows you well, such as a spouse, neighbor, or friend. 

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Sheron Brown-Greene, Human Resources Office at 610-853-5900 ext.7000.
